Donald Trump eleven years ago: We need Canadian style health care

April 15, 2011 | By | Reply More

Eleven years ago, Donald Trump argued that the United Stated needed a health care system like Canada’s system:

“We must have universal healthcare,” wrote Trump. “I’m a conservative on most issues but a liberal on this one. We should not hear so many stories of families ruined by healthcare expenses.”

The goal of health care reform, wrote Trump, should be a system that looks a lot like Canada. “Doctors might be paid less than they are now, as is the case in Canada, but they would be able to treat more patients because of the reduction in their paperwork,” he writes.
